    I was wondering if anyone has any tips, tricks, or workouts I should be doing to lose weight quicker and work on my technique. I'm also looking for workouts I could use for strength & conditioning

    Focus on cardio until you get your weight down to where you can do calisthenics then report back here. There aren't any tricks just hard work. Eat less of course but not to the point of fasting.

    If running hurts or you can't do it for very long then just walk. You burn the same amount of calories as running.

    Best of luck in achieving your goal. Losing 100 pounds is tough, it won't happen overnight. But definitely possible.

    This is a tough one for anyone to answer. Because, as stated above - there's no tricks. No way about it other than work hard, and consistency. Running, swimming, sparring, plyometrics, HIIT training at a minimum of 4 days a week.
    Lots of factors to consider, your age, fitness level, target timeframe, current training, goals, your nutrition.

    Tbh - I think a lot of people aren't jumping at the chance to answer this one, because there's just too many ways to go, too much unknown and we're not sure where to start.

    For an aggressive 100 lb goal, you may want to consider getting help from certified dietitian and trainer. It's certainly possible to go it alone with help from the internet, but your best bet are professionals.

    Tip #1 - Get your nutrition right. Success is 80% (or some other high number) achieved here. Pick your method, be it low carb, Paleo, etc. but do a bit of research and see what you can SUSTAIN.

    Tip #2 - Gear your workouts towards higher paced, full body ones. Don't go heavy, just go heavy ENOUGH. Compound movements are terrific. Take a morning or lunchtime walk.

    Tip #3 - Track your nutrition. Use MyFitnessPal or another. Track EVERYTHING.

    Plenty of fast paced walks until you get to the point where you can run, jumping rope or jumping jacks if you don' have one. Shadow boxing and hitting the bags are good enough for strength training, Don't try to calorie count, instead just eat what you know is healthy, which you know is vegtables and fruit but no one can survive off that, you need healthy protein in your diet and you can get that from foods such as eggs (hard or soft boiled is the best)
    Whole grains, oatmeat, peanut butter toast on whole grain, cottage cheese, tuna salad or chicken salad (use light mayo) lean meats such as chicken and Turkey and fish are great, steak is healthy too if you don't butter fry it, drink plenty of water, and stay away from sugar and cheese, eat fruit instead, i have an addiction to sweet tea so I started using fake sugar to keep off the pounds, I went from 216 to 170lbs and it wasn't too easy either, but my advice is to do light cardio, change your diet to a low fat low sugar diet, and don' starve yourself, and dont eat before you go to bed unless it' fruit or vegtables. Best of luck to you.
